This headphone surprised me in many ways. First of all the price is 599. That's not cheap price but also not expensive. Is right in the middle of low and high end price. But what do you get for your money? First of all, amazing build quality. This headphone is rock solid. Very well built. Second, you get a very comfortable, beautiful headphone. The headband and earpads are very comfortable and the clamping force is perfect to me. Third, comes out of the box with a 4.4mm balanced cable. And not just any cable, a high quality beautiful cable. Fourth and most important part AMAZING SOUND QUALITY. If I'm going to describe the sound quality of this headphone is EXTREMELY SMOOTH, EXTREMELY DETAILED AND EXTREMELE SOFT AT THE SAME TIME. This headphone gives you all. The highs are sweet and highly detailed. The mids are the real star. Female voices sound incredible as well as male voices. Musical instruments sound extremely realistic and real life. The bass is very textured, fast and detailed. I have tried more expensive headphones, some more than double the price and this one is better. This one does everything extremely well. I'm not saying this headphone is the best in the world but wow do they set a high bar for more expensive headphones. ibasso man really impressed me. Highly highly recommended! To ME this is the best headphone I have ever tried. In every category. 10/10.
